Soft, buttery shades of yellow, melt in the summer sun,
Reaching to touch the face of God, finding a place to run,
Days at their highest peak of light, soon like the flowers fade,
We bask in the glow of its heat, we search refreshing shade.
We wilt, we wither and we die, our life is spent in years,
Longing for perfect contentment, but never find it here,
As life moves on in this planet, we hope it’s for the best,
Our hearts fill with disappointment, we can’t pass every test,
We flounder in our summer days, hang on to every hope,
We place our faith in things above, to help our bodies cope,
The days now become much shorter, we lack the warmth and glow,
We struggle with the things of life, we cling to things below,
When we surrender to Jesus, our lives will be fulfilled,
He takes our hand and leads us, are fears will now be stilled.
